Eating For Performance

I get asked all the time how to eat. I think we tend to make it more difficult than it has to be. If we make sure to stick to real foods and not packaged stuff we'll pretty much do great. Here's what i have to say about how to eat.....Post to comments your ideas.

PS I will post a recipe for kale smoothies later :)


Think lean meats, veggies, good quality fat, fruit (only 2 servings a day in first part of day). Eat REAL food as often as possible (limit protein shakes and bars ). Stay away from anything packaged!!! READ LABELS!!!

No gluten (bread, pasta, baked goods, cookies, etc)
No dairy (best way to go)

Breakfast- 3 egg omelet. Add veggies like spinach, tomatoes, diced peppers.
1 sausage link or 2 bacon slices.
1/2 sliced avocado

Snack- 1/2 - whole chicken breast, mixed berries (blues, strawbs. 1/2 cup- 1 cup max)
Small handful blanched almonds.

Lunch- Large mixed green salad. Throw as much veggies on there as possible.
Grilled chicken OR grilled steak slices.
Olive oil and vinegar, 1/2 avocado slices.

Snack- Grilled chi ken or whatever meat you want.
1/2- 3/4 sweet potato (Japanese yam is the best)
* bake yam in oven sliced open and add spoonful of coconut butter or coconut oil to yam. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Tastes like candy.

Dinner- Grilled meat your choice or fish
Kale salad with olive oil, sundries tomatoes and garlic. (sautéed in pan)
Asparagus wrapped in bacon sliced and broiled.

Snack- Protein shake
1-2 scoops whey protein powder. Vanilla or chocolate.
1.5 cups coconut milk or water depending on how thick you want it.
Small handful frozen berries

DELICIOUS day. No weighing or measuring and it's REAL food without crap!
